When executing boot lan.xx.xx.xx install, the system has NO problem contacting the Ignite server and the ignite installation GUI comes up. However, once I select "INstall HP-UX", that's when I get that error. I have several C240 systems and this seems to occurs only on certain ones. This also happens on one of my L-class system. Does anyone know why this is happening? Thank you

There is a log file on the Ignite server in the client directory in /var/opt/ignite It might help with the error.

The workaround for this problem depends on if you are using
make_tape_recovery or make_net_recovery.
If you are using make_tape_recovery first run make_tape_recovery in
preview mode with the -p option (and all of the options you would
# make_tape_recovery -p ...
# cd /var/opt/ignite/recovery/latest
Edit the system_cfg file and remove any lines that look like:
In the logical volume definitions (the text in the  shown above
as ??? will be a hardware path or variable name, e.g. _hp_root_disk).
Continue the creation of the recovery tape by running the same
make_tape_recovery command except use the -r option instead of the -p
option (to resume the creation of the recovery tape that was just
When using make_net_recovery you can edit the system_cfg file of the
network recovery image you are attempting to recover to remove the disk
[???] entries in the logical volume definitions as indicated above.

Thank you for the information. However, I am not using make_net_recovery or make_tape_recovery. I am simply booting the client through network to install HP-UX, rather than using a CD.
Thanks for the link, I just tried and installed the latest 6.8 from the link you provided. Still having the same problem. The wierd thing is, only 2 of my 4 workstation have this problem. The other 2 boots into the GUI fine.

Funny thing is, all four systems are identical in every way, same processor speed, same amount of memory, same number and size of harddrive. The only thing that's different between the 4 C240 systems are thier MAC address and serial number.

Since you have upgraded the IG-UX server to C.6.8, I would suggest to remove those 2 clients and add them back . Try net install thereafter. If it doesn't work, then your best option would be to place a s/w support call with HP.

In my case, the problem was simply that i was introducing the second dvd instead of the first !!
The message is exactly the same that you are exposed.
